Extracting lift and drag polars from blade resolved computational fluid dynamics for use in actuator line modelling of horizontal axis turbines

Abstract:

Low order rotor models such as the actuator line method are desirable as an efficient method of computing the large range of operating and environmental conditions, required to design wind and tidal rotors and arrays. However, the integrated thrust and torque predictions for each rotor are dominated by the blade loading on the outboard sections, where threedimensional (3D) effects become increasingly significant and the accuracy of the reduced order methods remains uncertain. To investigate t...
